90% #OutOf100 – Babette’s Feast @ The Print Room, Notting Hill Gate

I love food, I love to eat and I loved Sheila Atim in Les Blancs so this production promised to be a feast of delights for me; and it was. I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation by Glyn Maxwell and directed by Bill Buckhurst. I hadn’t seen this classic before, either on stage or in film but I will look for the award winning film now. Babette’s Feast written by Karen Blixen takes us on a journey with Babette as she arrives in a remote Norwegian fishing community where life is simple, austere and pious, as a refugee from Paris....

74% #OutOf100 – Stormzy – Gang Signs & Prayer

Across all facets of urban folklore there have been many incarnations of “The Chosen One”. Those of us old enough to remember will recall championing the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Kano, and more recently Chipmunk as juggernauts of the Grime scene with prospects of transitioning at a commercially mainstream level. How far each managed to crossover (and at what cost) has been the topic of endless debate since; but whilst we’ve been talking amongst ourselves over the last few years, the mass majority of the Grime scene and beyond have collectively witnessed the ascent of a few new names;...
